Patient :I want to tell my doctor how I feel about my body
Image and that I binge purge restrict and fast
But I'm not underweight so I don't think she'd help me
I'm 17 would she tell my parents . I can't live like this anymore
I just want to be a happy teenager I've tried so many times
To overcome this myself but I can't and it's ruining my life .
I regret not telling my doctor last week when my mom made an appoitment
Because I haven't gotten my period in 3 months . The doctor asked me if I skip
Meals and if I don't like my body image but before I could really answer my mom
Started to panic and was like oh no I hope not ... So I just said no to all the questions my
Doctor asked .
